Learn to make the most of life, lose no happy day
Time will not give you back, chances swept away
Love while love shall last,
For the mill cannot grind with the water that has past.

Entrance Hymn

NEARER MY GOD TO THEE

Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee.
E’en though it be a cross, that raiseth me:
Still all my song would be, nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer, my God to Thee, nearer to Thee.

Friends may depart from me, night may come down,
Clouds of adversity darken and frown:
Still through my tears I’ll see, hope gently leading me,
Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee.

Offertory Hymn

ONLY A SHADOW

The love I have for you, my Lord,
Is only a shadow of your love for me;
Only a shadow of your love for me,
Your deep abiding love.

My own belief in you, my Lord,
Is only a shadow of your faith in me;
Only a shadow of your faith in me,
Your deep and lasting faith.

The joy I feel today, my Lord,
Is only a shadow of your Joys for me,
Only a shadow of your joys for me,
When we meet face to face.

Communion Hymn

SOUL OF MY SAVIOUR

Soul of my Saviour, sanctify my breast,
Body of Christ, be Thou my saving guest;
Blood of my Saviour, bathe me in Thy tide,
Wash me with water flowing from Thy side.

Strength and protection may Thy Passion be;
O blessed Jesus, hear and answer me;
Deep in Thy wounds, Lord, hide and shelter me,
So shall I never, never part from Thee.

Guard and defend me from the foe malign,
In death’s dread moments make me only Thine,
Call me, and bid me come to Thee on high,
When I may praise Thee with Thy saints for aye.

Catholic Women’s League Prayer

Final Hymn

THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD

The Lord is my shepherd and I want to follow
Wherever He leads me, wherever He goes.
Over the mountains, the waters and byways,
Valleys and highways He’s waiting for me.

THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD (cont’d)

I want to go to meet Him there,
To lay myself down in his love.
The Lord is my shepherd and I want to follow
Wherever He leads me wherever He goes.

And while on the journey to where we are going,
He promised to be there to help us along;
And over the mountains, we’ll walk on together,
To know all the wonders He’s given to me.

Recessional Music    “Derry Air” (Danny Boy)
